Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Beka28111 For less than a dollar a piece I got what I paid for...
I bought these for the children at my wedding. They were not at all what I was expecting (I should have read the review more carefully). You can not see through them, only a little light can go through the the ribbed plastic that contains tiny beads that get stuck and make it very hard to turn. Outside looks good and I might still give them to the kids but I will definitely be buying something else.
I will say Oriental Trading has the best costumer service. They helped me quickly and without making me repeat myself to 5 different people.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Harri looks great but inside is junk.
I bought these to use as examples of toy kaleidoscopes to compare with artisan made scopes. I couldn't believe how bad the view was. Didn't anyone look through the scopes? I took one apart. The mirrors were flimsy plastic held with plastic tape. There was no way they could give an adequate image. The exterior and design of the body was excellent but they are not kaleidoscopes.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jeftish very poor quality
I bought these to take to Africa...and they aren't even good enough to take to a 3rd world country. Poorly made,, the barrel gets stuck and the reflectors are very poorly assembled. Doesn't even begin to work like it should. Sending them all back.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by thejanith do not buy these
I bought these to send to children overseas as a part of their Christmas present. Unfortunately, when I tried one the mirrors inside are very poorly placed, some are smudgy and don't reflect, and the overall effect is not what a kaleidoscope should look like at all. The ends even stuck and wouldn't turn on some of them.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by fallfest They DO NOT work
I bought a lot of these because of the review. The reflective metallic inside does not work and the kaleidoscopes do NOT appear. It is like looking down a tube at beads that fall to the bottom. VERY LAME!!!!!!!!!
